There is a good sized car park, although it is hidden behind a petrol station. The check-in was quick and easy. The room was a big room with two double beds.There are plug and USB sockets by the bedsides. The wifi is free and simple to access; it was fine for simple internet browsing. The room was dark, although there...

We stayed here for one night while visiting the historic dockyard, this is a very good hotel for the price, very clean, room was extremely quiet, and breakfast was fresh and there was plenty of it. Sainsbury's up the road very handy for wine and nibbles for the evening! I like that you pay one price and parking and breakfast...

Holiday Inn Express’ are usually bang average soulless business hotels in business areas and this one is no different. Situated in a scruffy industrial area it serves its purpose and is fine for a couple of days with good parking and free breakfast. The room itself was little grubby and could do with a tidy up, and the evening meals...

Very typical of the brand with standard rooms and decor. Adequate facilities in bathrooms with liquid soap and in bedroom, coffee and tea maker. Bed and pillows acceptable. The breakfast, included in price, was good and guests were enjoying all on offer. Open car park with very limited security. Location is out of town and close to beginning of motorway...

Big car park (poorly lit), clean and modern hotel. Friendly welcome. Can be a long walk to your room but worth it when you arrive. Well worth the money as we had a weekend rate and great for an early Brittany ferry from the port. Didn't eat but food menus seem basic and limited (Hungry Horse pub within a mile...

Needed to book somewhere for an overnight stay for family of 4. This came up and seemed good value for money.

One big disappointment. First hotel that I visit where you need to pay upfront. In the beginning the reason was not clear to me but that didn't take long. I think it is for preventing people to run off. Heating in the room is a nightmare. The airconditioner acts also as a heater with as a result an uncomfortable airflow...

Enjoyed our stay here, the hotel was very modern and had everything we needed to enjoy a quiet stay. We will definitely be returning. Breakfast was great too!! There is not a lot to do directly outside the hotel but the city centre is just a short drive away!!
